SUNDERLAND boss Gus Poyet had no excuses as his side crashed out of the FA Cup – but said they weren’t good enough at ‘diving’ and dealing with a panicky referee!
The Black Cats produced a dismal performance to lose 3-0 at Hull City just one week after their battling Capital One Cup defeat to Manchester City at Wembley.
Poyet made six changes to his starting line-up and watched the Black Cats struggle to create any chances of note before Hull’s late burst saw them sink without trace.
Poyet said: “We didn’t create enough but I’m not going to try to find any excuses.
“The players who played today were not good enough and that is simple – in the 50-50s, in the diving, in dealing with the referee when he panicked for 10 minutes, in not recovering well and not creating one chance.”
